Mt. Saint Helens - Ape Cave / Lava Tube

MT. SAINT HELENS - Ape Cave / Lava Tube

Day Tour ~

The catastrophic eruption and lava flows of Mount St. Helens was so hot everything incinerated at its touch. After years of decay, what's left are amazing chimney-shaped lava holes where the trees formerly stood. The topsoil is rejuvenating and former tree stumps appear.

Called the Trail of Two Forests, you'll see casts of old growth trees buried by lava flows. A quarter mile stroll on a flat boardwalk.

Where once laid approximately 3 miles of underground funnel-like tubes of open space — seemingly cemented — enter through the middle of the tube where it caved in, and walk in either direction, deep into the earth.

Open to the public but unlighted, join the many explorers of our Pacific Northwest mountains region on an incredible walk not seen by many.
Lanterns or flashlights a must; decent shoes are needed.
